New Graduation Requirement Rules Adopted
SBE adopted rules regarding graduation requirements following the passage of legislation (HB 1599). Graduation pathway options have replaced the explicit link between the state assessment and graduation.
“The Board is pleased to announce the adoption of these rules following a thoughtful and comprehensive rulemaking process, wherein we received over 450 comments from educators, school district administrators, legislators, parents and more,” said State Board of Education Chair, Peter Maier. “The scope, volume, and sometimes intensity of this feedback process shows that our state cares deeply about public education and student pathways to meaningful futures.”
